Norwegian singer Liv Kristine (LEAVES’ EYES, ex-THEATRE OF TRAGEDY) recently entered Mastersound Studio in Steinheim, Germany — the facility owned by her husband, Alexander Krull (ATROCITY, LEAVES’ EYES) — to begin recording her fourth solo album. She is collaborating on the effort with Dutch musician J.B. van der Wal (ABORTED, DR. DOOM), who recently joined LEAVES’ EYES and ATROCITY as the two bands’ new bassist.
Liv debuted one of her new tracks, “Libertine”, at a special concert on December 2 at Alte Seminarturnhalle in Nagold, Germany under the banner “One Night With Liv Kristine”. Liv performed acoustic versions of her original songs as well as a few covers, including tracks from LEAVES’ EYES and THEATRE OF TRAGEDY.
Commented Liv: “Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who came to my solo show in Nagold, Germany. I am amazed and deeply touched by the fact that some of you travelled all the way from South America (Colombia), Finland, Spain, Holland, Belgium, Denmark, moreover, far-away distances from everywhere in Germany. It was fantastic meeting all of you after the show. Thank you for all the presents and all the amazing feedback to my concert. This was also to me a very special and unforgettable night, at a full venue! Hope to see everyone at further solo shows in 2012, one of them hopefully taking place in Nagold.”

Liv Kristine‘s third solo album, “Skintight”, came out in North America in September 2010 via Napalm Records. The follow-up to 2006’s “Enter My Religion” was recorded at Mastersound Studio and the artwork was created by Stefan Heilemann.
